this is a paragraph for a paper can someone please check the grammar? Only a small portion of the population in the United States are attending schools, and that small portion are people who really want to stand out and have a life full of joys and success. College is the place where you can choose the career you want to study and therefore plan for a better future. Also, to achieve your goals you must first be a successful student and to achieve it you first have to have qualities such as organization, consistency and be confident.
